A popular Kenyan musician, Philip Ptaroba Okoyo, popularly known by the stage name, Japesa, is in the news, and this time not because of his music.

Japesa shocked fans when he posted photos of a coffin he purchased in anticipation of his funeral.

Taking to his Instagram page, the flamboyant rap artiste shared a photo of himself posing with the casket, saying his fans will not struggle with his funeral expenses.
